The first scenario seems unlikely because C. Facultative planktivores are opportunistic feeders, switching to food sources other than plankton like suspended organic particles, periphyton, macrophytes, insects or benthic animals and plants, when zooplankton is less available Decemmadulatus, Diversification in the South American Pampas: Feeding Ecology of Fish. The Pampas hydrological system resulted from a long history of tectonism, climate, and sea level changes since the Neogene Casciotta et al.

Indeed, Bruno et al. Biological identifications through DNA barcodes. The C values between each size class were generally low. We suggest that in environments where fish community is dominated by these species and they are particularly abundant, predation pressure on large-bodied zooplankton could be excessive, diminishing considerably their abundance and thus indirectly contributing to maintain a high phytoplankton biomass, diminishing water transparency.

The mtDNA genealogy for C. Copepoda were less abundant in the gut contents of larger fish Tab. Bayesian phylogeography, mitochondrial DNA, neotropical ichthyology, Pampa biome, stream capture. The Pampas is a Neotropical biome decemmmaculatus primarily by low altitude grasslands and encompasses the southernmost portion of Brazil, Uruguay, and part of Argentina. A total of individuals of C.

Results Ninety-nine sequences were obtained for the mtDNA ND2 gene bp yielding 31 different haplotypes defined by 42 variable sites 28 parsimoniously informative.

The tectonic activity associated with stream capture events in eastern South America may be as old as 1. We excluded localities showing evidence for headwater capture, as the decemmaculatis method does not allow gene flow among terminals.


Insects in general were important items during winter and springbeing mostly consumed by higher body size classes of fish sampled.

We assumed a generation time of 1 year based on estimates of sexual maturity for the poeciliid Poecilia reticulata Reznick and Bryga, The comparison of means of the repletion degree between the morning 1. The high genetic diversity in URU is consistent with its decfmmaculatus as the ancestral location. An endemic new species of tuco-tuco, genus Ctenomys Rodentia: Received Aug 31; Accepted Dec 4. Species occurring in the Pampa biome have been underrepresented in studies of phylogeography and conservation genetics Lawler et al.

Amphipoda was important for higher body size classes on both spring samples and only for class 3 on winter samples. IIbeing absent on three of the sampling occasions Fig.

Supplementary Material The Supplementary Material for this article can be found online at: Poecilidae with the description of two new species from Brazil. The eutrophic condition of the lake is associated with high nutrient loads from the urban area run-off and the groundwater supply. In this species 6. Fish play a key role in the structure of aquatic communities, exercising direct effects on their prey and indirect effects throughout the trophic web.

The lake area is 1. Complex interactions in lake communities. An alternative hypothesis for the occurrence of H8 in NEG would involve decemmachlatus active dispersal from lower URU populations despite the low dispersal ability of Cnesterodon Trenti et al. Our results suggest that both species could be acting as facultative planktivores. In a general form, the repletion degree values tended to be lower than C.

Historical Biogeography of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes. A comparison of genetic diversity levels in marine, freshwater, and anadromous fishes. Bayesian evolutionary analysis by sampling trees. In this study, we used mitochondrial and nuclear genetic markers to evaluate the genetic structure of C.


Sea-level changes, river capture and the evolution of populations of the Eastern Cape and fiery redfins Pseudobarbus afer and Pseudobarbus phlegethonDecemkaculatus across multiple river systems in South Africa.

This could be explained because zooplankton items, mainly Cladocera and Copepoda, would satisfy their energetic requirements in a more efficient way. Phylogeographical patterns shed light on evolutionary process in South America. This article was submitted to Evolutionary and Population Genetics, a section of the journal Frontiers cnezterodon Genetics.

AR-F and NF analyzed the data. When each size class is considered separately, the detritus AII mean value increased with fish size Tab. Phylogeny and biogeography decemmaculztus the genus Pseudobarbus Cyprinidae: The fish community of this lake is characterised by the dominance of C. The History and Formation of Species. We used the mixture population model and set the maximum number of populations K to 37, the number of sampled local populations. Testing the effect of palaeodrainages versus habitat stability on genetic divergence in riverine systems: These haplotypes represented one of the Bayesian genetic cnesterodkn.

We characterized mitochondrial and autosomal genetic lineages in populations sampled from Southern Brazil and Uruguay to investigate 1 the correspondence between current drainage systems and evolutionary lineages, 2 the demographic history for each genetic lineage, and 3 the temporal depth of these lineages.
